Theodore Roosevelt High School (RHS), is located in Fresno, California. It is a high school established within the Fresno Unified School District. The high school mascot is the Rough Rider (in physical form it is a horse) named after the 1st U.S. Volunteer Cavalry Regiment Theodore Roosevelt organized and helped command during the Spanish-American War. The high school's colors are green and gold.

The school was opened in 1928, and was both a junior and senior high school. It now serves grades 9-12. Every fall RHS holds the "Little Big Game" (a.k.a. "Pig Game"), a football game that is played between Roosevelt and longstanding rival and fellow historic high school Fresno High.

RHS is located in southeast Fresno. During the 2011-2012 school year, 2184 students attended RHS. Many of its students are immigrants from Mexico and Southeast Asia. 51.8% of the student population are English learners. Below are rough figures of the student population.
